Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 cup raisins or dried currants
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a small cookie sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter with a fork (or with your fingers) until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in raisins and buttermilk until the dough is evenly moistened.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly-floured surface and knead gently until smooth. Shape into a 6-inch ball, place on a cookie sheet. With a sharp knife, cut a 1/4-inch deep cross on top of the dough.
  4. Bake 30-40 minutes, or until dough is just cooked through and the top is a light golden brown.

Notes

To save a step, you can also begin making the dough in a food processor.  Just be sure to stir in the raisins and buttermilk by hand.
